As always – excellent information from our friend and previous radio show guest Dr. Joel Moskowitz. And we encourage you to visit the slide show for much more:

The EMF Appeal was delivered to the United Nations and the World Health Organization on May 11th. Dr. Magda Havas presented the EMF Appeal at the 5th Congress in Brussels on May 19th. Links to 45 major news stories in covering the Appeal in 20 nations can be found at http://emfscientist.org/index.php/emf-media.
A related recent policy development was the adoption of a cell phone radiation safety ordinance by the City of Berkeley,California on May 12th. Berkeley will soon become the only city in the U.S. to require cell phone retailers to provide cell phone radiation safety information to consumers.
The Berkeley ordinance has generated more than 60 news stories to date, 25 since its adoption. Although much of the media coverage has been California-based, the story has been reported in The Guardian in the UK and byCTV in Canada. The wireless industry has also reported on the ordinance, including the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association and the GSMA in London.
Exposure to electromagnetic fields, mercury release and adverse health effects SMJ Mortazavi & Ghazal Mortazvi. Increased Mercury Release from Dental Almagam Restorations after Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields as a Potential Hazard for Hypersensitive People and Pregnant Women.

On the other hand, we have reported that increased mercury release after exposure to electromagnetic fields may be risky for the pregnant women. It is worth mentioning that as a strong positive correlation between maternal and cord blood mercury levels has been found in some studies, our findings regarding the effect of exposure to electromagnetic fields on the release of mercury from dental amalgam fillings lead us to this conclusion that pregnant women with dental amalgam fillings should limit their exposure to electromagnetic fields to prevent toxic effects of mercury in their foetuses.
Based on these findings, as infants and children are more vulnerable to mercury exposures, and as some individuals are routinely exposed to different sources of electromagnetic fields, we possibly need a paradigm shift in evaluating the health effects of amalgam fillings.
